Publisher's Summary

"The Great Gatsby", F. Scott Fitzgerald's third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

Author mispronounce could several words

Those few words make me wonder—What? Metrpoleee? It’s metropole —and several leaving g out a minor syllable or —The accent on the wrong syllable.For those who notice, it’s distracting

The Better Narration

I purchased this version after listening to another with an inferior narrator. This reader knew how to pronounce French and did the voices better.

Many errors in this reading

This narrator is very talented at varying voices for different characters. He’s easy to follow and understand. BUT he mispronounced many words and even skipped phrases at times. Sometimes what he misread completely changed the meaning. It’s a shame, because he has the potential to be really outstanding.

Read it For Literature.

Listened to it for literature. Good story composition, really unpleasant/disturbing content- at least for me. Well read, I appreciate the energy and variance of voice put into this book.

Someone Give This Actor a Dictionary

This could have been a really good performance. The sense of drama is there. The voices are distinct. What's wrong? An unforgivable number of mispronounced words. Fitzgerald has one of the best prose styles out there. Well, Mark White just doesn't know all the words in the book. That's the long and short of it. He's regularly flubbing them, and I don't mean just tripping on them. I mean he says them as if he knows how they're pronounced, but sadly, he doesn't know how they're pronounced and it's embarrassing. I thought about making a list of instances for this review, but that would be a waste of time. Believe me, there's a howler at least once every ten pages, and probably more. So if you like English prose and like to have all the consonants and vowels and syllables pronounced, stay away from this performance. It's careless about the medium, and it's a shame.

Never read this book until age 28

I had never read this classic in high school and figured I'd see what all the commotion was surrounding it. This book can be summed up into a few short words, "Rich people problems." I hated this book for a multitude of reasons. 1. A remarkably slow story. "We went here, said some words, then went there." 2. Not a single character has any redeemable qualities. 3. The "love story" aspect is just... wrong. Cheating, lying, sneaking around: these things aren't romantic. Their traits of just awful people. If your in a relationship and unhappy, LEAVE! If you have to be told what to think, YOU'RE dumb! I'm glad I can mark this book off my list but more importantly that I never have to read it again!
